WALTER MITTY & HIS MAKESHIFT ORCHESTRA- "Overwhelmed & Underdressed" 10" (Orange)
"Listening to Walter Mitty and his Makeshift Orchestra feels like talking to your elementary school crush, ten years later. A glimpse of possibility and exhilaration is hidden under layers of the mundane. Talking of going off to college and wanting a new start, lead singer Dustin Cole Hayes saturates “Overwhelmed and Underdressed” with images of romantic spontaneity. Those of which are often countered with realities of diverging pathways into the future. Often, one finds humbly poetic lyrics accompanied by playful kazoo and bright guitar riffs. The entire album feels like looking at a sketch that feels incomplete, but not being too sure why. While Hayes can instill an air of hopelessness, the majority of “Overwhelmed and Underdressed” leaves the listener appreciative of past experiences, and looking ahead to new ones."
